Not sure why it's a slap in the face. When he was your age I bet he didn't have 2 nickels to rub together. He's worked for everything he has. I'm sure that if you apply yourself you'll be able to afford the toys when you're old like him. (Ah, see how I kept this post balanced. LOL)


"Old like him" unless his age on his profile is wrong, he ain't old. If he is a whole bunch of us need to be just a little offended.


Yea I was kind of thinking that one myself.


Old is relative, Dashy is barely out of diapers.

Dash, use it as motivation. Work hard. Learn a lot. Make more $.

My age related comment was just a friendly jab to make sure it doesn't look like I'm playing favorites.

No not that... just grew up poor and when someone flaunts their wealth its like they're saying " im better than you". But i understand why cory said it like he did....


I agree with Dashrynn here. It does not matter how Jaksonbrown earned his money or what his background is. His post is merely to flaunt his wealth and attempt to feel superior to anyone who can not afford to live his lifestyle. It is in extremely poor taste to do this in public.
